Paper Bride: Modern Bride Top 25 Trendsetter

With all of my talk about success and "going for it," its lots of fun to talk about some of my own!

Modern Bride (see pic) chose me as one of the top 25 trendsetters of 2006 in the wedding industry (GULP) and the issue just hit the stands. I'm on page 292 and am pretty blown away to be included amongst so many other insanely talented people. A few of my faves:

*Lisa Hoffman of CeCi New York is charming and lovely and has the most, hands down, gorgeous invitations i've yet to lay my eyes on. She is marvelously creative and innovative in her designs and approach and her work is just stunning.

*Cakeman Raven has THE best red velvet cake I've ever tasted (and I've tasted quite a bit of it).

*Bliss Video Productions which is owned by a sweet and saucy lady named Kristin*--they did Molly Shannon's wedding and their work is really fresh and interesting in a sea of b-o-r-i-n-g.

Anyway, Wowza. I went to the awards dinner last night at the Ritz Carlton and was so excited to be included in such a group. On a sidenote, yesterday was, to the day, the one year anniversary of my company. After such an amazingly exciting year one, I can't wait to see what happens in year two!

Congratulations Erica.

Found your site via About and seeing the name "Bridalicious" (wonderful title)in the comments section and then Googling to get here.

Then I thought I was seeing double because I know I had seen you the other day at HereComesTheBlog.

Where do you get all your energy from?

Like others have said you are definitely an inspiration!!
